Despite the lapse of over 20 years since the political transformation, Poland still does not have any restitution law. However, many former owners did not want to wait for its adoption and in order to fight for the return of their property, or for payment of reasonable compensation, decided to commence costly and long lasting legal and administrative proceedings.
